  • What is the purpose of a firefly's light? A: Fireflies talk to each other with light. Fireflies emit light mostly to attract mates, although they also communicate for other reasons as well, such as to defend territory and warn predators away. In some firefly species, only one sex lights up. In most, however, both sexes glow; often the male will fly, while females will wait in trees, shrubs and grasses to spot an attractive male. If she finds one, she’ll signal it with a flash of her own. (Source)
  • What is the average temperature of the sun? A: The sun has an average temperature of about 5,500 degrees Celsius (9,932 degrees Fahrenheit).
